Turīyātīta (तुरीयातीत) refers to the particular state of consciousness that comes after “Turīya” and is associated with the fourth Praṇava (i.e., point—bindu) and the deity called Sadāśiva, according to the Svacchandabhairavatantra.—The five states of consciousness are not correlated with the Five Praṇavas in the Kubjikā Tantras, which are generally not very concerned with them. The principles are also not the Five Elements, as one would expect. Even so, the deities are the same. Moreover, at a higher level all the essential metaphysical principles of the two coincide.
Shaiva (शैव, śaiva) or Shaivism (śaivism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshiping Shiva as the supreme being. Closely related to Shaktism, Shaiva literature includes a range of scriptures, including Tantras, while the root of this tradition may be traced back to the ancient Vedas.
General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Wisdom Library: Hinduism
Turīyātīta (तुरीयातीत):—The name of Ātman when having attained perfection in the Turīya state. When Sakṣitva (the witnessing aspect of the Ātman) becomes then abhāva (non-existent). This final state transcends the first thee states, therefore the Ātman is called Turīyātīta.Source: Google Books: The Hindu World
Turīyātīta (तुरीयातीत):—Pratyabhijñā claims that the state of perfection achieved by its sādhana is beyond and above the turīya, the “fourth state” of the Upaniṣads: it is Turīyātīta, Śiva-consciousness, in which the individual experiences the self as identical with the entire universe and with Śiva.
